Investing in the future: Why installing a new roof is the best option

GAF_Timberline_HD_SlateA new roof is an investment, but it’s an investment that can pay off big in the long run. Here are four reasons why installing a new roof could save you time, money and increase your peace of mind.

  1. Extra layer of protection: A roof’s underlayment is designed to protect your shingles and roof deck from the outside elements.When you upgrade your underlayment, you are upgrading your home’s first line of defense. To maximize your home’s ability to fight off moisture, consider installing a non-bitumen synthetic underlayment. Synthetic underlayment is lightweight, durable and resistant to fungal growth, making it an excellent, long-term roofing solution.
  2. Increased wind resistance: Shingle wind ratings have increased dramatically over the last decade. If your roof is over 10 years old, it may be time for an upgrade. While shingles in the past have only had a wind rating of 65 miles per hour, shingles today have a wind rating of over 130 miles per hour! The higher the wind rating, the more durable your roof will be and the less maintenance it will require.
  3. Staying up with code: Replacing you roof will bring your roofing system up to current code. This upgrade will decrease insurance rates and improve the overall safety of your home.
  4. Improved insulation: Just like your home’s exterior walls, there is insulation in your roof. Over time, this insulation can become thin and deteriorate, allowing unwanted heat to enter or leave your home. Installing a new roof means installing new insulation, helping to decrease your energy bills and improve your home’s overall protection.
